Join the SuperJews this Hanukkah for Color War, Facebook-style

There’s one day left. Tomorrow, the microactivism begins:

The members of each SuperJews team will get an alert on each day of Chanukah with a mission for that day.

Missions will be online acts of good for the Jewish world; none will take more than a few minutes to complete, and sponsoring organization United Jewish Communities hopes that we’ll find them interesting and fun.

The more people on your team who complete each day’s mission, the higher your team’s score will be. Scores will be updated daily, and at the end of the eight-day Color War, Gold, Silver or Bronze medals will be awarded to all participants for their Facebook profiles.

Now’s your chance to band together with other Jews in the SuperJews Social Hall of Justice. It’s fun to see who joins what team, too: for instance, RED boasts such luminaries as JOI’s Paul Golin, Mrs. Ryestar, the former Matzah and Marinara, the “cartoony-woony” Chari Pere, a Jewish Robot, and some dumb oleh with a new Hanukkah video.

GREEN features Jewish stars like Martin Kaminer (of Bikkurim and myriad other initiatives), the tech-savvy and happily affianced susqhb, and Bangitout’s Isaac Galena.

BLUE‘s no slouch either, with Andrea the Gastronaut, SavvyAuntie, JFL Media‘s Amir Cohen, and Canfei Nesharim’s Evonne Marzouk. 

To learn more, visit Or become a fan of the SuperJews Color War on Facebook. You may want to join my team (Red, led by Queen Kabbalah and Mega Mensch, who you know have to read this blog), or join Green or Blue to compete against me…

So just do it. Join us. You know you want to.

And Happy Hanukkah to all the Jewlicious readers out there…

  • I hope you’re calling me a luminary sarcastically.

    I joined all three teams, by the way. So I’m definitely winning.

    ps – if we know everyone who signed up, how is this reaching the unengaged? 😉

  • You’re joking, Golin, but you’re right. Why would anyone who is not part of the incestuous little world of Jewish professionals possibly pay attention such a transparently lame ‘game’? I mean, really. This is what the UJC is spending its money on? Maybe it’s a good thing that they got wiped out by Madoff. This is what you get when you allow people over the age of 30 to create your web strategy.

  • Seems like the goal of the first “mission” is to give my contact info to a large Jewish org. I hope it’s not just 8 days of getting on everyone’s fundraising lists.

  • Wow, PJ, this is the second time I have come across your loathing of this project. Dude, chill out. It seems to me people on fb are having fun with this and ujc is getting some generally positive exposure – for once. I think whomever came up with this deserves some credit. If you don’t like it, don’t play along!
